The Future of ALM: Developing in the Social Code Graph
Mik Kersten, Tasktop Technologies
The open source movement has turned the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) landscape on its head by creating tools that enable the inmates to start running the software asylum. Just as the world changed when social networking tools made it trivial for us to externalize our relationships and activity streams, a new collection of open source ALM tools has made it easy for developers to go far beyond dumping code into SCM. Developers are now externalizing their collaboration practices and workflows into a loosely coupled social code graph connected by tasks and relationships.
ALM is transforming before us. A new breed of tool-supported open source practices is reshaping the ALM landscape and making software delivery the most transparent and connected knowledge work process. During this keynote, Mik will explore this transformation, show how it will impact software development in the next decade, and illustrate how today's developers are helping to shape the digital workplace of tomorrow.
Justin Early, Avantsoft
- Do you have someone on the team who gets called about Js issues constantly?
- Do you wish there was better code assist which was scope appropriate?
- Do you have globals running rampid in your js code base?
- Do you have issues with dependencies between multiple js files?
- Do you have issues with documentation not reflecting actual usage?
- Are you curious to learn more from the lead contributor of the VJET (recently introduced as an incubator project to Eclipse foundation)?
If so this talk is for you.
VJET is extensible/ I will demonstrate some of the recent work that has been done with one of the project contributors Sencha with support for ExtJS class system for their widgetkit.
Code Reviews with Gerrit
Shawn Pearce, Google
For the past 4 years Gerrit Code Review has been the driving force behind the development of the Android operating system, and is being widely adopted by Git users everywhere. Join the ranks of corporate and open source projects that have successfully deployed Gerrit to define a Git workflow, improve code quality, and ensure changes comply with project standards and policies. Learn how Gerrit has helped Git to scale for multi-site installations with more than 15,000 users and 17,000 groups. Discover the powerful access and workflow controls, including a branch level read access feature that is unique to Gerrit and its embedded SSH and HTTP daemons.
Introduction to BIRT and Big Data
Jason Weathersby, Actuate
While distributed systems and Big Data sources have become more prevalent, support to present results from these systems in a meaningful way can be cumbersome. The Eclipse Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) project now offers native support to access Hadoop through Hive queries and present your results in a user friendly way. In addition BIRT can access other Big Data sources such as Cassandra and MongoDB. Using BIRT, developers can display their data in a stylized tabular or graphical nature which is extremely customizable using the BIRT designer. These reports can include dynamic drill through, interactivity and can be exported to various formats, such as PDF, HTML, XLS, and ODT. This session will introduce developers to BIRT including the new features in the Juno release and will cover in detail how to retrieve and visualize data from Big Data sources such as Hive/Hadoop, Cassandra and Mongo DB.
